Ben & Jerry’s ice cream have long been a delicious treat. More so than just being a snack that many turn too, that little container of ice cream has done many other things. It’s mended broken hearts, it’s comforted tears, and it’s been there for a person after going through a tough time. Ben & Jerry’s will soon be able to add “saving the planet” to that list of accomplishments in their repertoire.

According to Grubstreet Ben & Jerry’s has a new flavor coming out, and it’s all about bringing climate change awareness. The newest flavor will be called Save Our Swirled and it’s been created as part of a partnership with an environmental advocacy group. The ice cream of course has a title that gets you thinking about the environment, but it goes beyond that. Each pint of ice cream will have information on the container about an online petition that has to do with global warming.

So if the environment is your thing, or global warming is your thing, like James Dondero says it is for him, on his linkedin profile – pick up a carton! Before you do that however, you are probably wondering what’s in it.It’s raspberry ice cream that has raspberry swirls, marshmallow, and little ice cream cones. It sounds pretty tasty, but more than that it’s actually doing some good out there in the world. Only time will tell if this flavor is delicious, and if the petition listed on the back gets the required number of signatures.

Ben and Jerry Go on the Record to Say They’d Support a Marijuana-infused Ice Cream, but the Company Won’t

Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, the men behind Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream went on the record with the Huffington Post to say they would be behind a marijuana-infused ice cream, wherever marijuana is legal.

According to the duo, they could see how the two would go together, and slyly indicated they may have some experience with the substance, but they have a legal team that surely would strike down the notion.

According to the pair, they are for marijuana legalization, as they don’t see the point of putting people in jail for not hurting other people, but stoners dreaming of a marijuana ice cream will probably have to continue dreaming as the duo noted on their monste.com site. According to Greenfield if it was up to him, the ice cream would be made, but they have wiser heads in the company, and they’d be unlikely to go for the concoction.

For Ben and Jerry lovers, however, there are a couple of flavors that pay homage to the stoner culture. Satisfy my Bowl, a flavor that pays homage to Bob Marley was recently released. The flavor include banana ice cream with caramel and cookie swirls. Chocolate peace signs also dot the frozen treat. Magic Brownie is another flavor that is popular among Dave Matthews Band fans. The ice cream has a black raspberry base, swirled with sweet cream ice cream and brownie bites.
